Moises Caicedo has been told he can be one of the best midfielders in Europe.

Now Roberto De Zerbi is looking to get the most of his talents.

Caicedo has another chance to impress as Albion take on champions Manchester City at the Etihad today (3pm).

De Zerbi has tweaked the midfield pairing of Caicedo and Alexis Mac Allister.

The Argentina international revealed he has been told to have at least 100 touches of the ball per game, as reported in The Argus this week.

De Zerbi said: “Caicedo is improving so much the quality of his play.

“In your newspaper you produced a statistic for the touches on the ball by Mac Allister.

“For Caicedo, it is the same.

“He has almost tripled his touches of the ball in a match.

“Caicedo for me could become one of the best midfielders in the Premier League and in Europe.”

Asked what impressed him, De Zerbi said: “Caicedo is a top player with and without the ball.

“There are many players who are very good with the ball but without it in defensive spaces are not so good.

“Others in the defensive space are top but with the ball, there are some problems.

“With Caicedo, I don’t see anything not at the top level.

“And he is only 20, he is very young, so he can learn and improve more. He has no limit.”

Caicedo had 99 touches in the 1-0 defeat by Tottenham and 80 against Nottingham Forest on Tuesday compared to 53 in the win over Leicester, which was the last game before the change of management.
